Greek Chicken Pasta

One of my favorite magazines is Taste of Home. I grew up eating very simple comfort food, and that is what this magazine has every month. I knew when I saw this pasta dish it was going to be delicious.

recipe

Start boiling some water, preheat your broiler, and lets grab some ingredients.

ingredients
The tattooed man in the background is not required for this meal, and will not eat it when you are done. You will need some cooked chicken, chicken stock, pasta, feta, butter, artichoke hearts, sun dried tomatoes, onion, parsley, and some yummy olives.

chopped
Chop up your tomatoes, olives and onion. I used my awesome new Rada knife.

chopped
Chop up the butter and the chicken.

flour
Measure out your flour. Measure your chicken broth too, I didn't get a picture of that. Drop your pasta in the boiling water and lets get on to some deliciousness.

buttery
Get the butter melting in an oven safe skillet. Every once in a while you gotta splurge with a dish like this.

onions in butter, yum
You can imagine how awesome this smells, unless you are my friend Biz who does not like onions :) Cook the onion until it is softened.

ready to go in
I had everything else that was going in the pan standing by to go in, I think it all looks so tasty together.

onions and flour
Stir in the flour and cook for a minute.

saucy
Gradually add the broth, this is going to thicken up quick.

stir in the pasta
Stir in everything else but the pasta and get it all mixed together. This looks so awesome already.

drained
Drain your pasta and it is almost time to eat!

ready to broil
Stir in the pasta and then pop this whole thing under the preheated broiler for about 5 minutes.

out of the broiler
Look at how great that looks after just a few minutes under the broiler.

Greek Chicken Pasta
Top with a little parsley and you are ready to enjoy this cheesy and creamy pasta dish. I cannot believe that my husband could pass this up after smelling it browning under the broiler, but more for me!!

I hope you all have a wonderful week!

  8. Your hubby's tattoos are pretty awesome! But maybe not as awesome as this pasta. Food pretty much trumps every good thing in my book-ahahaa! Sounds really good.
